Union Minister of State for Social Justice Ramdas Athawale said the BJP would win approximately 260 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections and Narendra Modi will once again become the prime minister of India.
When asked if he would like to see Union minister Nitin Gadkari or Narendra Modi as the next PM, the Union minister said since the BJP will contest the upcoming elections under Modi’s leadership, the latter should get the opportunity.
“Nitin Gadkari is a very good friend of mine, but Narendra Modi will become the next prime minister. Gadkari is a very active minister in the union cabinet. But for now, Modi will become the prime minister…Let’s see what happens after five years,” Athawale told the media.
“Now, elections will be fought under the leadership of Narendra Modi, and hence he should get the opportunity. After that, if Nitin Gadkari’s name comes up then it is well and good,” the minister added.
Athawale further said that the BJP will grab around 260 seats.
